Government guidance states that masks should not be worn in primary schools and social distancing rules of 2m are not to be apllied either. Instead of this the following have been applied:
- Classrooms above Year 1 will be organised in rows, with children sitting side be side for much of the time. There will though be occasions when children will have to work in small groups to facilitate some areas of the curriculum.
- Children will remain in their classroom for much of the day. There will be no whole school assemblies during this time.
- Children will wash/sanitise their hands whenever they return to the classroom.
- All children have individual pencil cases with regularly used resources.
